Villanova Making Easy Work Of Opponents As Big Faves

Congratulations, Radford, you have won the right to take on the Villanova Wildcats in the Round of 64. As you would expect, Villanova is going to be a massive favorite but that should not concern bettors all that much. ’Nova is 13-1 SU and 9-5 ATS this season when closing as a favorite of 15 points or more, with an average scoring margin of +20.4 points.

  • Radford is 1-11 SU and 2-10 ATS in its last 12 games as a double-digit underdog.
  • The total has gone OVER in 12 of Villanova’s last 15 games, with an average combined score of 160 ppg.
  • Radford is 8-0 SU in its last 8 games.

Villanova has been cruising lately – winning its past four games by an average of 19.3 points. Offensively, the team has been red-hot, shooting 51.4 percent from the field and 43.5 percent from beyond the arc in those four contests. On top of that, Mikal Bridges may be playing his best basketball of the season with the junior averaging 21.6 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.4 steals in Villanova’s last nine outings.

Radford continued streaking by winning its First Four game vs Long Island, bringing a season-high winning streak to eight games. Freshman Carlik Jones may have played the best game of his collegiate career against LIU, as the guard recorded 12 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists. However, any viewer of that game saw that the Highlanders won despite themselves and simply made fewer mistakes than the Blackbirds.
